Once upon a time it was summer. We talked about going to the beach on the weekend, ate lunch (and dinner!) outside on the picnic tables and walked around in sundresses without a care in the world, or a jacket. And then as quickly as summer arrived, it went back into hiding and we were left with showers, rain boots and mud. April showers bring May flowers. What a ridiculous saying.
However, despite the schizophrenic spring we are experiencing, we’ve snuck in a few retreats, a couple of stolen Sunday suppers on the porch, nestled in the trees of a New Jersey forest (who knew they existed?). Lasagna, four kinds of homemade pizza, white wine and kettle corn. Salads piled high with cucumbers, walnuts and cranberries. Watermelon slices, German chocolate cake, and fresh whipped cream. And multiple blankets to face the cool breeze in the shade of early evening.
